Missouri is a pretty good place to live. It is America's 18th most populous state with 6.08 million residents. The state is landlocked in the Midwest along the Oregon Trail and Pony Express. There are various things from which the college students get attracted such as Missouri's four-season climate, Kansas City barbecue, farmer's markets, St. Louis Cardinals baseball games, and beautiful landmarks like Mark Twain National Forest. The state has also featured 36 public and 54 private institutions for higher education choice. Few examples of the top-notch schools are Missouri State University, Saint Louis University, University of Central Missouri, Truman State University, and Rockhurst University.

What are Missouri Scholarships?

Grants, college scholarships, and loans are key features of successful educational financing efforts for needy state students. The average tuition & fees in the state of Missouri is $8,504 for in-state and $15,968 for out-of-state students. To meet college costs the Missouri students of higher education draw from a variety of financial aid resources. State-sponsored student aid initiatives originate from the Missouri Department of Higher Education and supplement large scale federal financial aid programs.

Need-Based Scholarships

The first step toward landing valuable financial aid for college is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The standardized application helps the U.S. Department of Education, and also the individual campus financial aid offices, compute your financial requirements for college. The cost of attending your school, your family’s expected contribution, and your personal income are used to determine how much assistance you need.

Merit-Based Scholarships

To qualify for Chancellor’s Scholarships, the students often graduate in the top 10% of their high school classes. The highly competitive awards are valued at up to $12,000 each, and may be renewed as long as at least a 3.5 GPA standard is maintained.  You can contact your Missouri high school guidance counselor for more information on this substantial opportunity.

The key to land a scholarship is being selective with your time and choices

  • You may be better off by contacting an Admissions Counselor at each college or university and asking your questions to each of them if you have a list of colleges or universities where you would like to apply.

  • Mostly, every college and university home web pages have links to the Admissions department from that main web page, and also the admissions offices will provide an email contact, so that you may send messages with your questions.

  • Whenever required, you can always check online and be able to easily get information about various college scholarships. Instead of searching for each type of scholarship for which you think you are qualified, they allow you to just put in your preferences and find hundreds of potential sources for free college money.
